1965

Eventually, someone came up with the idea of an attached garage so you wouldn’t have to walk in the rain to get to your house after parking. Another great idea...!

American Garages expands into Minnesota in the 1960's and Gerald Smith, son of the founder, takes over.  By the mid 1960's, most homes were being constructed with a single car garage attached to the home. As our country’s wealth grew, so did our consumption of automobiles until we reached the 1970's when two-car households started becoming the norm rather than the exception. And so, American Garages once again saw the need for larger detached garages so they adapted and grew to accommodate the needs of the American driver.
